This is one of those instances where the film's quality and historical significance make owning the disc close to mandatory, regardless of the lack of extras. Roberto Rossellini's neorealist classic Rome Open City comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer (as all film produced before 1955 should). The Italian soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English subtitles are accessible. The image was mastered from a 35 mm print and offers the best picture this fine film has ever had on home video.
